Last night’s speech was impressive. Well written and well delivered. Team Obama’s response was to snarkily note that it had been written for her. A great swath of the media predictably made sure to include this bit of news in every mention of the speech. This elicited my favorite line of the morning from Michelle Malkin:
Now, they have a problem with political candidates who are skilled at reading a teleprompter and delivering great soundbites and revving up large crowds?
Patterico makes a similar point:
But here’s the thing. Who wrote Joe Biden’s speech?
For some reason, nobody asks this question.
Finally, since this is a round-up sort of post, Riel World View notes that ABC’s patented “independent voter” is a member of Code Pink and a big fan of Cindy Sheehan.
But other than that, the coverage was scrupulously fair…
